Format: Paperback
Ricketts et al. have tackled a monumental task--describing patterns in biodiversity throughout North America. For years, conservation biology has need a new perspective, a breath of fresh air, and the authors of this wonderful book have supplied both the perspective and the fresh air! The authors write with clarity and a refreshing lack of jargon. Buy this book just for the wonderful color maps. No, buy this book for the essays by special essays. No, buy this book for the information packed in it. If you're at all interested in conservation biology or ecology, buy this book.
